When you can’t quite find a subject-specific quote that works, a famous proverb or saying (particularly one which might make your tutor smile) could work well.
This I Believe is an international organization engaging people in writing and sharing essays describing the core values that guide their daily lives. Over 675,555 of these essays, written by people from all walks of life, have been archived here on our website, heard on public radio, chronicled through our books, and featured in weekly podcasts. The project is based on the popular 6955s radio series of the same name hosted by Edward R. Murrow.
Early childhood programs can provide a source of enrichment for needy children, ensuring them a solid start in a world where those with inadequate education are increasingly marginalized. Neuroscientists estimate that about 95 percent of the brain develops between birth and age 5, supporting the case for expanded access to early childhood programs. While the United States spends abundantly on elementary and secondary schoolchildren ($67,956 per student per year in 7568–69 dollars), it devotes dramatically less than other wealthy countries to children in their first few years of life.
Family Structure. While most American children still live with both of their biological or adoptive parents, family structures have become more diverse in recent years, and living arrangements have grown increasingly complex. In particular, the two-parent family is vanishing among the poor.

Always start at an edge and finish at an opposite edge.
Since office buildings are many feet high they need
some expert staff and required material and tools in order to
execute the cleansing process. For instance, dish soap can not
only be used for washing dishes but also for cleaning your laundry.
The high-school senior had stellar standardized test scores — a 85 on the ACT — and a demonstrated interest in the sciences, attending a selective program at MIT during the summer of his junior year.
To the dismay of federal officials, the Coleman Report had concluded that “schools are remarkably similar in the effect they have on the achievement of their pupils when the socio-economic background of the students is taken into account.” Or, as one sociologist supposedly put it to the scholar-politician Daniel Patrick Moynihan, “Have you heard what Coleman is finding? It’s all family.”
Family Income. As with parental education, family income may have a direct impact on a child’s academic outcomes, or variations in achievement could simply be a function of the school the child attends: parents with greater financial resources can identify communities with higher-quality schools and choose more-expensive neighborhoods—the very places where good schools are likely to be. More-affluent parents can also use their resources to ensure that their children have access to a full range of extracurricular activities at school and in the community.
Schools alone can’t level the vast inequalities that students bring to the schoolhouse door, but a combination of school programs, social services, community organizations, and civil society could make a major difference. Ensuring that all kids, regardless of family background, have a decent chance of doing better than their parents is an important societal and policy goal. Innovative approaches such as those outlined here could help us achieve it.
If you’re studying Politics, a quote from a politician can work very well. Again, make it relevant to the essay (if you’re writing about Thatcherite Britian, “There’s no such thing as society” would be fine, but less so if you’re writing about the Middle Ages…)
However, you have to be aware that you are using someone else's work for your own benefit. You will get the marks, but the author of the ideas may have put in decades of research to come up with the concepts.
In opening our eyes to the role of family background in the creation of inequality, Coleman wasn’t suggesting that we shrug our shoulders and learn to live with it. But in attacking the achievement gap, as his research would imply, we need to mobilize not only our schools but also other institutions. Promise Neighborhoods offer cradle-to-career supports to help children successfully navigate the challenges of growing up. Early childhood programs provide intervention at a critical time, when children’s brains take huge leaps in development. Finally, small schools of choice can help to build a strong sense of community, which could particularly benefit inner-city neighborhoods where traditional institutions have been disintegrating.
Considering Pope Francis came out in support of Catholics welcoming gay and lesbian people into churches last year , the issue is timely. But the student 8767 s teacher didn 8767 t approve of his essay 8767 s original focus. 8775 In the next class, I was then informed that I had to write in support of the view of the church. Furthermore, this was also the class where she said we had to prove and support the Church 8767 s teachings, 8776 the student wrote. 8775 It 8767 s not that I 8767 m incapable of writing something I don 8767 t agree with, it 8767 s just that, in this case, that was not the right choice, for a number of reasons. 8776
When doing research, we very rarely come up with our own theories. These take time to develop, and involve putting them out for debate. By researching the theories of others, we include ideas in our works that have already gone through that academic testing.
